a book in review! & happy release day!

Brief Summary: 

Wealth, fame and a real-life romance she never expected—seventeen-year-old Vaughn Bennett lands it all when she agrees to become a pop star's fake girlfriend in this smart, utterly addictive novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author duo Erin Watt 
Under ordinary circumstances, Oakley Ford and Vaughn Bennett would never even cross paths.
There's nothing ordinary about Oakley. This bad-boy pop star's got Grammy Awards, millions of fangirls and a reputation as a restless, too-charming troublemaker. But with his home life disintegrating, his music well suddenly running dry and the tabloids having a field day over his outrageous exploits, Oakley needs to show the world he's settling down—and who better to help him than Vaughn, a part-time waitress trying to help her family get by? The very definition of ordinary.
Posing as his girlfriend, Vaughn will overhaul Oakley's image from troublemaker to serious artist. In return for enough money to put her brothers through college, she can endure outlandish Hollywood parties and carefully orchestrated Twitter exchanges. She'll fool the paparazzi and the groupies. She might even start fooling herself a little.
Because when ordinary rules no longer apply, there's no telling what your heart will do…


I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. We all know I love me some Erin Watt, like full on l-o-v-e. So when I saw that they (Jen and Elle) teamed up to pen something else under Erin, I said sign me up! Now the cover of this book is gorgeous and I love it. Okay, enough about that, let's get to the review shall we? When It's Real has everything an Erin Watt novel would-drama? check! a female lead you'll want to be friends with? check check! a HOT male lead?? CHECKKKKKK! Ahhhh, Oakley is fineeeee and I want him to sing to me all day everyday. You'll be on the edge of your seat wanting to know if Vaughn and Oakley are going to get together. Erin Watt books are the definition of page turners. While this is written as a standalone, I feel like there could be a book two-hello Paisley, please tell your story cause we know you got one girl. If you are looking for your first beach read of the summer, look no further than the 5 star book that's When It's Real. I PROMISE you won't be disappointed, xo!
